Comment on Plan for auxiliaries to replace cops at bottlos by Scarlett Grant.

The issue that no politicians or would be politicians are addressing is the responsible service of alcohol. Is this due to donations afforded?
It is concerning that the tax payers are funding compliance with the liquor act, when the publicans benefit. I would think the only publicans not to have been impacted by the police presence area those that acted in accordance with the law.
Why can’t the licences be altered so that appropriately trained people are required to be employed as part of a liquor licence application and granting process paid by the publican which is then independently reviewed as to suitability to retain a liquor licence?
